Instructions
1. Lay the fabric on the work surface.
2. Cut a piece from one of the rolls of sequins. It should be about the same length as one of the long sides of the runner.
3. Apply hot glue to one of the long outer edges of the runner and glue the sequins onto it.
4. Cut any excess sequins with the scissors.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 using the differently colored sequins and place that piece directly next to the first row of sequins. Make sure there are no gaps between the sequined pieces where the fabric shows through.
6. Continue applying sequin pieces, alternating the two colors. After you glue 10 rows of sequins to the fabric, it will be completely covered.
